My children are 6 and 4 so any medication is given in liquid form, in general if they dont want to take it i get a syringe hold them still and squirt it to the back of the throat their natural reflex is to swallow it job done! But as they get older a little bribery works wonders eg they can have a sweet if they take it. My youngest has just been on a long term antibiotic and she HATED it we went through a lot of jelly babies lol and the medication did nothing over three months waste of time :(
